Though this doesn't seem to be the logical choice of a 11 year old boy, I remember catching the series while it was on the air. The first batch of shows in 1975, with Doc's office featured in the basement ground floor of his townhouse, were the better of the series. For some reason I still recall the episode with Moosie Drier and the wonderful interaction Hughes had with the child actor. Like others, my interest faded when the focus of the series moved from the home office to the clinic. Too bad this series didn't do more for Hughes, as there must have been something to his performance to keep a young boy such as myself coming back. His performance in Doc Hollywood reminded me of his role in Doc.
